Maxey: Greg Oden Sings On Kevin Moyer Track

44
Wendell Maxey of Beyond The Beat interviews music producer Kevin Moyer, who explains what it was like working with Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden on a song for his new record, "Live From Nowhere Near You: Volume Two." ------------------------ Greg and I spent about an hour, maybe an hour and a half. He was still in work out sweats and it was during the season so I didn’t want to waste too much time. He said one of his favorite places to eat was Buffalo Wild Wings and I emphatically told him that he needed to check out Fire On The Mountain instead (don’t know if he ever did). We talked about Rihanna a bit and laughed about how the track I wanted him to sing was sounding a bit like Carlos Santana meets "Take These Broken Wings" by Mister Mister. There was a lot of me telling him that everything sounded really good and him looking at me and not believing a word of it. At one point he began spelling his name to the beat and I am half tempted to make a loop of it over a beat and give it to him as a ring tone. I don’t know what his response was to hearing the final version as I had to email it to him due to the basketball season schedule… but he messaged me saying it was "cool". ------------------------ Moyer also compares Oden's vocals to those of Barry White. ------------------------ I was making the comparison of Barry White with his vocals too - definitely. I can only imagine how funny it sounded to hear all the grunts and "ooohs and ahhhs" coming from the room. I don’t think Greg knew there was an office just beyond the wall with about 5-6 people working. After we were done and he walked out and saw them, he looked surprised and shot me a look laughing at himself a bit. ------------------------ Listen to the song, "O-No-You-Oden", here. Order the album here. Maxey reports that proceeds will go to support homelessness and street youth programs.
